New Rings by Erica Courtney
Hands down, the most memorable piece of jewelry seen at this year's Oscar ceremony was the pair of topaz earrings worn by actress Jessica Alba. The earrings were designed by Los Angeles-based jeweler Erica Courtney, a favorite for A-listers at awards ceremonies (Madonna, Elizabeth Taylor, and Julia Roberts have all donned her sparkling creations). But mere mortals can also get Courtney's designs, and her new spring line includes these stackable diamond rings. The rings come in gold and platinum; prices range from $600-$4,800. According to her web site, the Dallas native got her start in jewelry back in 1984 by applying Swarovski crystals to bandanas, sunglasses and watches. I'd say she's come quite a long way since those early days.
